Violent crimes are surging in the Philippines as more and more expatriates are getting murdered there.
Channel NewsAsia reports that, "Three Filipino men have been detained after confessing to dumping the bodies of a missing Japanese man and his Filipina girlfriend at sea, the justice department said on Thursday (Aug 14). The men disposed of the bodies of Japanese businessman Yuji Okada and his girlfriend in early July on the orders of a Filipino suspect who remains at large, the department's National Bureau of Investigation said."
Some Filipino crime rings are targeting tourists and expatriates.
According to Channel NewsAsia, 'The grisly confessions came a day after the South Korean embassy in Manila expressed alarm at a rise in crimes against its nationals in the Philippines, citing the killing of nine South Koreans this year alone."
In many instances, victims of murder get dumped out at sea, while victims continue to be reported as 'Missing.'
